Need to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city? Pitlochry is the place to stay. Only two hours North of Edinburgh, Pitlochry is situated in beautiful Highland Perthshire. It is ideally located to explore the surrounding area with its variety of stunning landscapes and range of activities.

Pitlochry Backpackers is an old Victorian hotel, bursting with character. We offer a range of rooms – dormitory (4-8 beds), twins and double rooms. It’s such a relaxing place to stay and unwind, with its big cosy lounge that boasts a free pool table, comfy sofas, free tea, coffee & hot chocolate, free WiFi, games, book swap and loads of info on the local area.  Our comfy beds come complete with bedding so there is no need to worry about carrying a sleeping bag and our self catering kitchen has everything you will need to prepare your favourite dinner. It’s a great place to meet like minded people and although you might think you’re only staying one night, you’ll end up staying three or four – it’s that kind of place!

Best of all it’s literally a stroll away from the beautiful highland country-side – in just 5 minutes you can be at a tranquil loch-side with views through the trees to the hills above this gorgeous highland town. There are many wonderful walks to take; to waterfalls, along rivers, through ancient forests, or up Ben Vrackie (2760 feet, the hill above the town) – these walks all start from the hostel door! The area is also dotted with distilleries, castles and ancient standing stones all within easy reach.

Perthshire is also a big centre for adventure activities, including white-water rafting, canoeing, bungee jumping, mountain biking, canoeing etc if you’re up for it – or simply get your boots and get exploring – there are some fantastic trails. The Pitlochry staff are a friendly bunch who know the surrounding area like the backs of their hands and are willing to help so don’t be shy! Come and have a chat at reception and we can make sure you make the most of your time in Pitlochry.
